Or perhaps Cliff has posted here for many years and has taken the time to give very detailed ratings of shows, using the Robert Parker wine scale methodology, [http://www.erobertparker.com/info/legend.asp], as well as numerous top 10 lists and other breakdowns (check out his Europe 72 posts), so that he has gained credibility with many because when it comes to the GD it's obvious that he knows what the fuck he is talking about and doesn't post just to post and draw attention to himself. Also, his disdain for the many shows he attended is well known and, frankly, kind of sad to me since I saw many shows I'd never want to hear again but had a great time. But hey, he's right - mid-80s' Dead can't begin to hold a candle to what came before.

Lastly, just for his "more shows" foray into filmmaking, he deserves slack from snot-nosed posers just looking to stir the pot. If you can't take the shit you so richedly deserve, stop posting. However, methinks (!) that you want the attention because it fills a void in your otherwise meaningless existence...

"However, methinks (!) that you want the attention because it fills a void in your otherwise meaningless existence..."

it's not that i really want the attention, i just don't mind it. i understand that my conduct and attitude is going to prompt a fair amount of attention. it's always been that way. i'm opinionated, i stand up for myself, and aren't afraid to speak my mind. this is bound to bring some amount of attention and controversy, and i'm used to it, and perfectly fine with it as well. i'm just being myself here, and have no need to fish for attention on an internet forum, but i can see how you might have arrived at that conclusion.

i don't think you need to defend cliff, as i was criticizing his little minions. i have a great amount of respect for most of cliff's contributions here. his musical insight is one of the main aspects that drew me to this place. i tend to agree with most of his musical assessments, and actually value his musical opinions more than anyone here other than lightintoashes.

I just love the sage advice and critiques from a twenty four year old. I wish your parents wouldn't let you use their computer.
